I created a custom field in System Inforomation under the audit tab called "AgentGUID". I was going to have a script populate it...
Except it auto populated ITSELF! I'm guessing it just knew by the name I used what info to fill in.
Does anyone know of other cool things custom fields can do, or use, or magically create?
Err... that's the primary key in pretty much every table. Don't use that :P
I'm not using it. We're reporting on it and pulling it as a variable in a script.
'DHCP Server' and 'DNS Server' do the same thing as well.
its because all the fields named already exist in system info... there is no reason to duplicate them... i would remove them.
I would suggest that it is a bug, to be able to create a custom field that has the same name as an existing field name in the database. The database a complex system however with thousands of tables, fields, views etc. so catching all the duplicates is pretty tricky.
Perhaps preface any custom field name with "MYCO_" or similar, to guarantee uniqueness?
